Question: DO I HAVE TO HAVE TRAINED STAFF TO BEGIN WITH?
Answer: Yes! The first people you train are Dianetics auditors and Course Supervisors, then a Purification Rundown In-Charge and then additional auditors. These staff are trained in Church of Scientology Central Organizations. Training your staff is a vital element in your establishment, expansion and long-term viability.
Question: CAN I BE A MISSION HOLDER AND WORK AT OTHER THINGS?
Answer: With the exception of being a staff member at a Central Organization or above, the answer is yes. A mission license does not require that the Mission Holder work solely for the mission. However, it is advised that you take on the job of starting the mission very seriously, and we have found by experience that the key ingredient of success is full-time dedication to the job. At the very least, the mission is a hands-on job.
Question: CAN I MAKE ENOUGH MONEY TO SUPPORT MYSELF AND MY FAMILY?
Answer: Yes, when you start out, you will definitely have to be prepared to promote heavily to begin with, but it is quite easy to live comfortably as a Mission Holder. After all, Dianetics and Scientology technology are very popular in the community and thus, if people know you are there, you will not find it difficult to expand quickly.
